This is one of the earliest and most authentic books on the biographies of the Sirhindi family of Sufi masters in India. It is written in four volumes, each dedicated to a different Shaykh of the Naqshbandi tariqa.
This book was written in Persian and was completed in 1201 AH (1786/1787). No Persian edition has ever been published, and Persian manuscripts exist in various libraries. This is the Urdu translation of the original text, first published in 1900.
